SULPHUR SPRINGS, TEXAS, APRIL 9, 2007 – Texas Sport Aircraft Company [American Legend Aircraft Company] announced today the introduction of the Texas Sport amateur-built aircraft. The Texas Sport is a factory-new aircraft kit intended for amateur builders. The design of the Texas Sport is in the spirit of the American Legend Cub and historic Piper J-3 Cub.
The Texas Sport combines the most popular features of the J-3, PA-11, and PA-18 designs. Builders can certify to a gross weight of 1320-pounds, and then pilot their Texas Sport under the new Sport Pilot regulations. Or, the Texas Sport can be certified with a higher gross weight of 1600-pounds. The Texas Sport is similar in appearance to the Piper Cub utilizing a J-3 wing design, PA-11 struts, and outboard wing attachments like the PA-18 Super Cub. Like the Legend Cub, the airframe features a 3-inch wider cockpit providing a noticeably larger cabin. Additionally, fuel is stored in the wings allowing for solo flight from the forward seat. The Texas Sport can be built with your choice of PA-11 style closed cowl or J-3 style “eyebrows.”
Base price of the Texas Sport Aircraft kit is $37,600 with additional options including engine, interior, avionics, paint and more. Texas Sport Aircraft Company also offers a 21-day KwikBild program to assist builders with the completion of their aircraft.
The Texas Sport kit allows amateur builders to complete their own aircraft with their choice of features and options, often at a fraction of the cost of a production airplane. The joy of flying tube-and-fabric aircraft is expanded by the availability of the Texas Sport [now Legend Cub kit].
